Roc International Hotel, a replica of the famous Sheraton Hotel in the FCT. An abandoned towering structure at Shere hills around Lamingo in Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State is yet to see better days. Standing alone in front of a large lake but surrounded by captivating and beautiful rock formations, Roc International Hotel is unarguably the best that Jos is yet to have.
It was late Solomon Lar’s government that awarded the contract of the hotel in 1981 to the Flemingdon Dev. (Nig) Limited with the aim of building a five Star hotel with 318 rooms on completion. However, 35 years down the line, with now 280 rooms constructed, the hotel has seen 12 different governors attempting to complete it without success.
Where did we get it all wrong? A lot of meaningful but abandoned projects in the state.
